How much feed do you grow? : LUSENET : ACountryPlace : One Thread

I was wondering if anyone here is attempting to grow feed for their animals? I am talking grain here. If so what are you growing?

We are always trying to grow feed around here, some works, some doesn't. The best we have found is oats. We cut them just when the bottoms are starting to turn color. We cut at the ground and put up as oat hay, oats still attached. Feeds both hay and grain in one job. Our horses and cows love it and when mixed with regular hay, they will all pick out the oat hay first. We grow 2 crops of this, spring and fall. Joanie
